Baseball season, a sure sign of spring, has officially begun! Now entering its fifth year, Target Field has received national recognition as a cutting-edge professional sports facility, and this summer it will be host to the All-Star game.
But all is not rosy. After 3 years with a losing record, ticket sales continue to decline. Is the new stadium the solution or part of the problem? Was this the best investment of public funds? What are the economic effects of the stadium?
Join us for a look at the public funding of stadiums featuring Twins President Dave St. Peter, Minneapolis Downtown Council Representative Steve Cramer, Senior Fellow Jay Kiedrowski at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, and special guest and World Series Champion Kent Hrbek. In addition to the informative discussion, there will be pizza and a chance to win fun Twins giveaways!
